Birthing Gently Doula Mentor Program


Congratulations! You completed the Birth Doula Workshop! Now What?


Where to start? How to find clients?  Nervous about interviews? What about contracts and refunds? How to connect with other birth professionals to establish yourself as a new birth Doula within your community? Nervous about meeting with your clients one-on-one during the prenatal period, not sure what you should be covering at the prenatal visits? Feeling like you need support throughout your first three births? Overwhelmed about interacting with hospital providers? We will HELP!
